More "old" multi quotes today.
Tip-top trio Gary :) :thumbsup:
Thanks, Jack. :)

Thought I'd take these two Catts out for a spin today. :)
Couple of compelling Catts, JJ! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

For the last few days.
Today's is undecided... Just got up to 3" of fresh snow!
That chestnut bone SBJr is admirable :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: (but fresh snow is not)!

About as basic as it gets - Brown Delrin Case 6333. We've been a little distracted -our first great-grandchild came into the world this week. Really neat, but I’m not sure I was quite ready to think of our little girl as a grandmother.

(and Vic Cadet)
Belated congrats on the great-grandchild! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

Really handsome knife, Dean! :cool::cool::thumbsup:
Just when people like r8shell r8shell have almost convinced me that a bareheaded ebony jack is the epitome of culture, you post yours with an endcap and I think, "Wait a minute ..." :rolleyes:

Seems like an Albers Saturday. Have a great one everybody!

That "glitter gold burl" is really cool! :cool::cool:;)

Case medium stockman for today.

Such tasteful bolsters on that series, Dean! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

Happy Saturday Everybody
Going to take the puppy for a short hike, come home and finish some yard work, then throw a tri-tip on the smoker. 🤠:thumbsup:
Pictured is two knife slips made by Greg @sunknife . I offered to trade one of his slips that he makes for one of my slips that I make.
I've always admired his slips, they have a really cool Rustic or Native American vibe to them. Being a generous person, he sent me two of them.
I'm super excited to have them and hope he likes the one I sent him half as much as I like the ones he sent me. Thanks again, Greg. :)

Congrats on the new slips, John! :cool::thumbsup::cool: Is that copperhead new, too? Really fantastic bone on that knife!!

Now that is a working knife. BTW, back in 2013, when I started down this rabbit hole, I remember Google-ing GEC for images. Your background in the picture above tells me I spent quite some time admiring your early GEC pictures. Here is my working knife.

Good-lookin' knife; a sheep/pen blade combo seems all-business to me! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: Is that one of those Hay'n Helpers?

Sounds great John :) Stunning pic folks, hope everyone is having a great weekend :) Happy May Day :thumbsup:

Your AC is superb, Jack! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Jack and a Stockman :thumbsup:

Captivating pair, Steve! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: How did your month with the Buck 110 work out for you?

Pretty Paint Brush Horn, GT. 🤠:thumbsup:
Thanks, John; some of the horn handles can seem to have an inner glow that impresses me! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

Man, that's gorgeous stag, Taylor! :thumbsup::cool::cool: Is that a 73?

...
Fine-looking threesome Gary :) :thumbsup:

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Tramping for seven miles round the cobbled streets of York, trying to find a pub that was open has left me feeling pretty worn out, even after a good night's sleep! Hoping Charlie's Waynorth Lambsfoot will have some restorative powers ;) Enjoy your Sunday folks :thumbsup:

Thanks, Jack. :)
That WCLF in jigged bone is an unforgettable knife, and that's a great photo! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

A Jack, and a Cattle today.
First couple of cups of strong, dark bean, while thinking of something more elaborate than yesterday’s thin, watery gruel.

Ok, not really. It was oatmeal with butter, raisins, and cinnamon. I just like saying thin, watery gruel.

Best Sunday wishes...
Jeff, I've read about your new technology for resizing your pics and how it has made your life easier. I don't know if that re-sizer or the new BF software is the reason, but I think the quality of your photos has also made a sudden quantum leap in quality and crispness! Couple of beauties you posted there! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

Your breakfast remark reminds me of an episode of the old Bob Newhart Show in which the dentist who has an office on the same floor as Bob's psychologist shop mentions that when he grew up in an orphanage, all they ever ate was thin, watery gruel, and Bob replied, "But who would want lumpy gruel??" :D

Something for (late) Stag Saturday and Stockman Sunday. Hope everybody's having a great weekend.
Good to see the stag HHB outside the vault, John! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Queen [China] Peanut for work today. Has a great main blade in my opinion.

Your Chinese Queens are looking really good to me; I like that peanut with a spearpoint main blade! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

Thank you, GT. :)
It was a lucky find on the Exchange a couple of months ago.
It was just sitting there begging for somebody to buy it. If it's not a GEC, you have shot at them.

Thanks again, GT. :):)
Have to take advantage of the rare HHB sightings. ;)

Thanks. I wasn't sure I would like it until I saw it in person. Maybe I should have tried for a Glitter Gold TC - maybe I would have liked those as well;)

Thank you for your kind knife compliments, Gary. I think the barehead ebony jack is a great looking knife, too!

That is a nice one. The 5OT is one of Schrade's great knives in my opinion. I enjoy them also.
